Alcools (Wesleyan Poetry) PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Alcools (Wesleyan Poetry) free pdf Alcools, first published in 1913 and one of the few indispensable books of twentieth- century poetry, provides a key to the century s history and consciousness. Champion of cubism, Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918) fashions in verse the sonic equivalent of what Picasso accomplishes in his cubist works: simultaneity. Apollinaire has been so influential that without him there would have been no New York School of poetry and no Beat Movement. This new translation reveals his complex, beautiful, and wholly contemporary poetry. Printed with the original French on facing pages, this is the only version of this seminal work of French Modernism currently available in the United States."
